When someone has a drug or alcohol addiction, it can sometimes be hard to deal with the underlying issues that cause it or stop using the substances that control the person’s life in many instances. However, a drug and alcohol addiction intervention specialist can be of assistance so that the person has the support that’s needed to live a life that’s free of drugs.
One of the roles of a drug and alcohol intervention specialist is finding quality treatment centers that offer the help that each person needs. Research should be performed by the interventionist to find a center that specializes in the care needed for the specific substances that are used. Centers are usually researched so that they have adequate staff and so that they have counseling and therapy sessions that are geared toward the personality of each person who needs help.
As soon as the person is ready to get help, a drug and alcohol intervention specialist can arrange transportation to take the person to a rehab facility. The method of transportation, whether it’s a van or a flight, is typically available within a few hours once the intervention is over along with a bag that contains clothes and other items for the person to take.
Not only does an interventionist offer support to the person who is dealing with substance abuse, but they also support the family and friends of the person as well. They are typically available to talk to after the intervention and to provide information about the process and the future of the person after rehab.
